Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.

Mark your calendars for our Guild meeting on November 10th at First Presbyterian Church in Sioux City.
The program will be presented by our own Betty Pratt, and the subject for the evening will be broderie perse. If you don't have a clue what this is, or if you would like to learn more about it and try it in a quilt, be sure to join us at the meeting.
At this meeting we will also be electing officers for some of our board positions; collecting ornaments for the Festival of Trees; collecting hats and other winter wear for the school kids; and enjoying animal quilts completed for the President's Challenge.
